Places:

Crown Cleaning and Dyeing Company Building: Built in 1925, the building at 1987 South and 1100 East once stood as the Crown Cleaning and Dyeing Company, a locally owned business. In 2003, the building was added to the National Register as one of the six historic Sugar House sites. The building has been changed over the years but still stands as a representation of what Sugar House was and still is —an ideal place to have a business. Today it’s home to a furniture store called Details that sells home furnishings.

The Genevieve & Alexander Curtis House: The Genevieve & Alexander Curtis House was built in 1921 by Alexander Curtis and sits at 1119 East and Westminster Avenue. The house was built for the Curtis family and then, between 1921 and 1951, divided into apartments. During those years, Genevieve and Alexander Curtis, who were influential people in the Salt Lake City community, lived in the home. Genevieve Curtis was the first woman to serve on the Salt Lake City School District Board of Education and was a member of the PTA and other teacher organizations. She raised 11 children and was named Utah Mother of the Year in 1957. Her husband, Alexander Robertson Curtis, owned Curtis Coal Company and started the company with only a borrowed horse and secondhand wagon. He later became one of the most prominent businessman in Sugar House and helped in development of the area. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Utah.

Faces:

What’s your favorite place in the world and why?

Paige Tanner: Yellowstone National Park. Geysers, mud pots, bison, elk and bald eagles. There is no place with so much geothermal activity. I am a science nerd. I also worked there one season and met so many amazing people.

Ricky Carlson: Agnes Waters/Town of 1700 in Queensland, Australia. Nowhere else comes close. You can camp out for $7 a night in a thick subtropical rainforest only a 5-minute walk from the most beautiful beach I’ve ever been to. There are beaches and coves stretching for 20 miles up the coast, and the main beachhead is 6 straight miles of sand so clean it literally squeaks under your feet. There’s hikes and surfing and day cruises to the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef. And best of all, despite being a big tourist spot the local towns aren’t big enough to support a huge population so it’s never too crowded if you go in June/July, the Aussies think it’s too cold to swim so you basically get this little slice of heaven to yourself.

Lisa Morrise: My house, with my dog and my kids. Sometimes, but not always in that order.
